Loe2travel....that all sounds delicious, but my inlaws are 100% Ukrainian and very very traditional at that turkey with stuffing is a must, mashed potatoes and gravy....cabbage rolls (I make my own and conveniently they are already gluten-free), three different kinds of perogies (still looking for gluten-free recipes), broccoli cauliflower casserole (not traditional but I force it on them because its one of my favorites, will be able to pull off gluten-free easily) a few fun salads......hmmm I'm missing something. For dessert I usually do a Scottish truffle, a couple different pies and a small assortment of dainties. (butter tarts snd jam jam cookies are usually a given)
I made it through thanksgiving without having to worry about the gluten-free menu. (We went to my brothers and my SIL is also celiac). But I am hosting all my inlaws for Christmas...all of them. So I have been searching pinterest and allrecipies, looking for good gluten-free holiday dishes. I don't want to take the easy way out seeing I usually throw quite the little feast when it is my turn to host Christmas. Does anyone have any good tried and true recipes they'd like to share?
My hubby and I were actually just talking about taking a little trip across the border soon. We can be in Minot ND in about 3.5hrs. (We are from Saskatchewan) I can get some bare essentials about 45min away. I googled pacific naturals. Yes they will ship up here right from their warehouse but shipping charges would be insane! I'm sure there has to be another option.
My oldest son wanted me to make hashbrown bake for supper tonight. Poor dude was so bummed.
From what I understand, 'big river' dot com doesn't ship to Canada. And 'big river' dot ca doesn't sell food items. I did find 'well' dot ca which is a canadian based online health and wellness site. I did find a few things there (a little pricey) and am going to Google pacific and see what pops up for availability in Canada.
Thank you everyone for all your help. This has been quite the experience. To be honest, this has been tougher to get a good grip on than my son's Autism.
Yes, they are for sure the gluten-free rice crispies. and I forgot to mention we are in Canada. We don't have pebbles up here I will have to look for progresso and pacific naturals. I've never seen pacific naturals around here but maybe I can find it online. As for cheese and breadsticks....like cheese n crackers.
How about mac and cheese. What's your go to brand for mac in cheese. I've seen so many different brands online its overwhelming to know what ones are good. I'd love to make my poor guy some kd. Ivebeen making so much rice and potatoes as sides this month cause I know it's safe
We have officially had our son completely gluten-free for a month now, and it is going well. However there are a few things I really truly do miss and can't find a gluten-free option for...
Condensed cream of chicken and cream of mush. soup, goldfish crackers, cheese and breadsticks (for school lunches), soup (soda) crackers.
Also those of you with children, can you recommend some 'kid approved' cereals. My poor boy is getting bored of rice crispies and he doesn't like chex (its a texture thing)
Nope, he's had all those products at least once since his dx. All I can think of is the bread. I made it in the bread machine. I made sure to wash it well,but in all reality, it is old. It was a hand me down from my mom, but I thought it was safe. Or even maybe an ingredient in the bread. I'll have to go back and look again
I don't know where it would of come from, but I'm pretty sure I fed him gluten somewhere. Yesterday evening he was complaining his tummy hurt followed by nasty poops before bed. This morning, still pooping...
His food for the day:
Breakfast - leaping lemurs
Snack - oj, banana, gluten-free cookie
Lunch - sandwich made from homemade brown rice bread, gluten-free sandwich meat, cheese slice.
Snack - apples
Supper - gluten-free sausage, carrots, minute rice make with gluten-free chicken stock and gluten-free soya sauce
The only place I can think of is the bread I made (which was a flop btw, but he liked it so who am I to judge) or the minute rice. Crap!
Nice to 'meet' you. For as much as this is going to come out wrong so please don't take it the wrong way. It's awesome to not be the only one in my shoes. I'm sorry you are going through many the same battles we are. He hasn't been officially dx'ed either. His bloodwork was positive last Monday, but if I would of been paying attention, it is obvious. But we were too caught up with everything else going on with him. Appts, drs, therapies.
Do any of you shop online for your none perishables? Seeing I don't have access to alot without going into the city, and when I do, the selection isn't very good and super expensive. I'm hoping I will be able to order different pastas, bread mix, etc online somewhere.
